I was up to Marrowstone Island over the weekend, and much to my surprise, there was a male Common Goldeneye hanging out in the marina at Nordland.  Just to be sure, I went back next day, and yes, I am sure.  He seemed to be possibly in some kind of eclipse plumage -- he had the distinct white circle at base of bill, but his head feathers were brown like a female's, not green.
